LUSTENAU, Austria, - Traditional German racing circuit uses IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' SensorSMART Platform to monitor the noise level of race cars.
IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, the global-leader in wireless sensor systems in collaboration with Berlin GmbH Engineers Bureau BeSB, have deployed a noise measuring and identification system for use on high-speed race tracks.
Leveraged off of IDENTEC SOLUTIONS' SensorSMART Platform, the system effectively measures noise emissions from race cars in real-time. Deployed at Nürburgring Motor Sport Complex, the system is used to identify vehicles that exceed the permissible noise limits to enable immediate and appropriate action.
As the world's first and only eco-certified race track, the Nürburgring Motorsport Complex in Nürburg, Germany, was faced with a growing number of race events and needed to establish a special measurement method for the monitoring of noise emissions from track vehicles. To achieve this BeSB selected IDENTEC SOLUTIONS SensorSMART Platform, an ecosystem of active RFID tags, sensors, readers and edgeware for the application's network.
"With the high-speed solution from IDENTEC SOLUTIONS we were able to fully automate stations to collect and map the level of sound intensity", said Edelbert Shaffert, Managing Director BeSB. "This was realized with simple to deploy infrastructure for a very reliable solution".
For further flexibility, the Nürburgring noise measurement application was designed to be completely web based. "On the complex's internet server is a list of participants which is constantly updated with the information provided from the RFID sensors in the vehicles", says Schaffert. "
Since early 2011 all Nürburgring Motorsport Complex vehicles are equipped with an IDENTEC SOLUTIONS sensor. The automated detection of the noise level significantly reduced the administrative burden and enabled real time control and situation response.
